|March 25, 2014||• ClCalc.exe (Command Line Calculator) had a minor update.
Version 1.00 used to display its result as
This makes it easier to capture the result in a batch file:
|February 28, 2014||• KiXtart version 4.64 is available.
|February 20, 2014||• The network section of my unattended installations page has been updated.
The part explaining the use of NETSH was originally written for Windows XP with TCP/IP v4 only. Though the technique could still be applied, for current Windows versions it was far too complex, due to the number of protocols and connections.
The new section is much easier!
|February 17, 2014||• Denis St-Pierre sent me some updates/corrections for my script editors page.
|February 7, 2014||• BatHL.exe (Batch code HighLighter) has been updated:
|February 4, 2014||• UpdateCheck.vbs' INI file has been updated: the script now correctly reads the latest version of phpDesigner from the web page.|
|February 3, 2014||• BatHL.exe (Batch code HighLighter) is a tool I wrote to detect some of the most common typos in batch files: unterminated quotes, parenthesis, percent signs and exclamation marks.
It is still in beta. If you want to try it, be my guest...
|January 30, 2014||• ASCII.exe and Unicode2ASCII.exe are 2 programs that both aim to convert input text to plain ASCII.
I wrote them, amongst others, to get rid of the annoying byte order marks in the C# source code I upload to this site (Notepad for some reason refuses to save them in ASCII).
Which one will work in which case is hard to predict, it depends on the "encoding" of the input text ("standard" Unicode or not, byte order mark missing or not, default codepage, etc.); you may have to try both and compare the results.
|January 28, 2014||• ODT2PDF.exe is my first attempt at LibreOffice/OpenOffice automation in C#.
It uses UNO to open a LibreOffice/OpenOffice Writer document, and save it as PDF.
It requires either LibreOffice or OpenOffice, plus its SDK, and a 32-bit Java runtime.
Tested with LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 and Java 1.7.0_51-b13.
|January 24, 2014||• NETSHHelp.bat is a simple batch file listing all available NETSH commands for all contexts.
The NETSH page was created using this batch file.
|January 16, 2014||• By special request the Basic Hardware Inventory HTA now includes the BIOS serial number in its printout and its export to CSV.|
|January 15, 2014||• A major update of the Basic Hardware Inventory HTA (Hardware.hta).
The user interface has been improved (less Internet Explorer and more HTA), mouse and keyboard have been added to the inventory, print preview has been fixed and "fast printing" has been added.
The HTA's help screen has also been added as a separate web page for this site.
|January 10, 2014||• TimeSyncWeb.vbs is a new script that one normally should never need. It synchronizes the computer's system clock with a web server. Replacing the CMOS battery on the motherboard is a much better option — if possible at all...|
|January 3, 2014||• A minor update of the WMI Code Generator HTA: some errors in the Help screen's HTML code were corrected.
Besides that, I also added the Help screen as a web page to this site.
|January 2, 2014||• A major update of the WMI Code Generator HTA (WMIGen.hta).
The user interface has been improved (less Internet Explorer and more HTA), a new command line switch for unattended use
